Brynne Edelsten’s Past Comes Back To Haunt Her – Were You Surprised?

Brynne Edelsten must not have been very happy Monday morning when she  opened this weeks Woman’s Day magazine, and saw the article alleging she used to be a stripper.

Brynne’s team have gone into damage control saying there were a lot of inaccuracies in the story, however rumour has it they had actually left a lot more salacious information out.

News.com.au writes:

TRASHTASTIC reality TV starlet Brynne Edelsten consulted lawyers yesterday following magazine allegations she previously worked as a stripper.

The Arizona-raised bombshell – who married controversial Aussie entrepreneur Geoffrey Edelsten, a man worth an estimated $100 million – denied claims made by Woman’s Day she started out as a club dancer at a nightspot called Skin Cabaret in the small town of Scottsdale.

In a statement to media, the 29-year-old said: “In response (to the story), I have questions.

“If I was a stripper, and I’m not, what’s the crime?”

Edelsten’s manager John Scott confirmed they had engaged their legal team.

“There’s so many inaccuracies with that story and of course we have consulted our lawyers,” he said.

The offending article quoted a supposed ex, Eddie Carlee, who said he got Brynne the job at Skin Cabaret.

“For a while she dated a rich guy here named Eric Crown but it didn’t work out,” Carlee told the mag.

It also quotes a former LA landlord, Elizabeth Rhee, who said Brynne called her one day to say she was moving to Oz.

“She was getting married and suddenly she had money to burn because she wired me money to pay these guys to move her stuff,” Rhee told the magazine.

Brynne met 69-year-old Edelsten in Las Vegas and within weeks had moved to Melbourne with him.

On a recent episode of her Channel 7 show, Brynne: My Bedazzled Life, she flew her best friend Katie Eagle – a stripper from Skin Cabaret – to Australia.

Woman’s Day editor Fiona Connolly said: “Out of respect to Brynne, we edited a lot of material too explicit to publish.”

Brynne has heaps of fans out there, and I am not sure they would be too shocked about her background, we always knew she wasn’t a nurse of school teacher.

Brynne: My Bedazzled Life screens on Seven at 7.30pm on Thursday nights.

Judging by the “skin” for the alleged clubs website, I find this allegation against the admitedly stacked, but decidedly homely, Brynne entirely implausible – http://skincabaretaz.com/skincabaretaz/Home.html

A stripper? Really? The same Brynne that danced like an elephant on DWTS?

3 Culinary Boner { 11.01.12 at 3:21 pm }

lol Lisa.
An appropriate pole dance arrangement in this case? – http://www.dreamstime.com/single-column-of-zeus-temple-and-parthenon-thumb16792353.jpg

Oh yeah, that’s Brynne’s pole.

5 A.P { 11.01.12 at 4:21 pm }

Who cares! I still like her.

Lisa I think you have just given her lawyers their case to sue saying they allegations are not true. Hilarious.

CB – LOL

I like her too. She’s harmless.

So what if she was? I think she’s a sweetie.

care facto zero … its obvious she didn`t join the convent at 18. What I do question is being aged 29? Gosh if she is she has had a hard life then.

I don’t mind Brynne and I think that background story fits okay with the rest of her bedazzled life. I have to agree with Lisa, she couldn’t dance to save herself. She must have been a static stripper and pole sitter.

Geoffrey was a stripper, too. Of medical funds he wasn’t entitled to..

12 Anonymice { 11.02.12 at 1:13 am }

And we’re surpised because…?!??

13 Culinary Boner { 11.02.12 at 9:42 am }

I’ve always been more excited about the pole sitters Georgie

14 Georgie { 11.02.12 at 9:59 am }

Lol CB, I can always rely on a ‘twist’ from you!

15 The Oracle { 11.02.12 at 10:10 am }

No way the bedazzled Brynne is 29..more like 39+ with a whole lotta work done.
lol @BDD yes..remember the super clinics, the football club, the pink helicopters..happy days! :)

Important factoid: Arizona’s official state fossil is petrified wood.
Which is probably what Geoffrey surprised Brynne with.

17 Georgie { 11.02.12 at 10:36 am }

In the form of a pole no doubt.

18 Ruby { 11.02.12 at 4:07 pm }

Maybe she didn’t have to dance ….there are other ways you can work for your money….:)
